It's a Wonderful Life…

with the Mace family.


Our youngest has a unique way of looking at things.  Here are just a few things we’ve remembered to write down as they’ve happened.  This has been just over the last year.  Wish we could record them all.

I’m not moving my feet, I’m twinkling my toes. (in response to my asking him to quit moving his feet while in bed)

Well that is part of the law. (Said this when questioned about being disobedient when asked to get dressed.  He put his clothes over his pj’s.)

We need to get a car that uses gasoline instead of gas.

I don’t have nightmares anymore, but once we return the movie (Bearenstein Bears and the bad dreams) I will have them again.

Do you know why they don’t play baseball at the zoo? Because (according to Gavin) the baseball could hit the dinosaurs’ glass and then they would get out and eat all the plants.

Last night, Gav shared with us that when he grows up he wants to be a deep sea diver so he can hunt cookie cutter sharks while wearing a chain mail suit. When asked why, he told us so they don’t bite anyone. Then he went on to tell us about five other species of sharks he would hunt down afterwards so shark bites would not happen.

While cuddling up with Gavin in my bed this morning, the following conversation ensues.
Gav: I have to lock your door to keep evil men out. If the police take their guns and they still come in…..Oh they can go in the bathroom and then come into your room and eat you. (After locking that door too) There, now they can’t eat you.
Me(chuckling): Gavy, no one’s gonna eat me.
Gav: Why not?
Me: I’m not tasty
Gav: Yes you are. I’ve licked you before and you taste good.

You’re doing manly things B.  Exercising and taking your shirt off.  Those are manly things.

(During a fill in the blank session in history) Me: Going against tradition, Martin Luther married a former _______, Katharina Von Bora.  Gav: Woman  (the correct answer was nun.)

Walking In Agape

Walking in agape, having one love, one focus which nothing else compares... The Great I Am, Jesus Christ!

These are the Days...

Set Apart for the Gospel of Christ
